Have just taken my friend to the Dr's for a check up/results of blood test. She weighs over 15 stone, does no exercise at all, eats everything she should not eat, ie. cake, biscuits, bread, chips and snack food yet cholesterol was just over 3. Does any of this make sense when I've religiously stuck to fruit, veg, low carb, plenty of exercise, weight around 8stone, yet cholesterol over 7 and taking tablets for BP? And to really rub it in, my husband who is also overweight ie 19 stone + and eats everything he shouldn't, has low cholesterol and BP in the 110/70 region.
